so if you're going to identify yourself as a libertarian, a part of the republican movement, this did romney in, i think, is the fact there's a social agenda that scares most americans, and that is anti-gay, anti-women's rights, anti-immigration. look, that's not the future. i think that we are absolutely, socially accepting of others' behavior as long as others' behavior doesn't do harm to us, and, yet, this remains centrist within republicans. i'm disheartened by the fact there's so many people who identify themselves as libertarians, but they don't vote that way. john: i didn't think romney was anti-woman, but we're out of time. thank you, all. coming up, i'll explain how to fix government, but one clue, we should fix it the way we fix a cat.

'm sure he wanted no part of that [bleep] pie. in fact, i'm even more sure that obama was looking forward to watching president romney having to choke it down for him. >> jon: you're telling me obama was planning to lose to romney. >> i don't know about planning to lose but he was sure as hell trying to, two words, jon, first debate. two more, in denver. they provide some contest to the first two words. >> jon: you are saying obama took a dive. >> of course he took a dive, of course he did. >> jon: in denver he took a dive you're saying he took a dive. >> exactly we said it four times together. the point is obama is a smart man, jon. and a notoriously brilliant speaker. you don't seriously think that spending a couple of hours sleeply looking at his hands was the best codo. you know that piece of paper he kept looking down at during the debate, all it said was just keep blowing this, keep blowing it. >> jon: but why, why would he do that? when -- >> fiscal cliff, jon, on december 31st if congress can't compromise on a budget something that they have single-handedly proven they are incapab
? >> well, here's part of that story i think. the republican base was energized. romney received more than 57 million votes. that is a heck of a lot of people. they were committed and i was talking to all of them and they were really, towards the end, maybe last 10 days kind of on fire. however, that base itself is getting smaller. you know it is a smaller slice of the pie than it used to be. and i think one of the big lessons of this campaign is that republican political operatives have been for a quarter century tri saying exciting the base, getting the base to the polls. it is about more than that now. from here on every election is trying to expand the base, meaning trying to per said. trying to talk to getting with people, look, this is our plan. this is it why we think it is best. i think the way the republican party itself does business is probably going to be changed by this election and that's a good thing. david: i talked at the beginning about bitterness. there is a side of the republicans, the opposition right now, which is bitter, saying that their sense is that americans are
and they beat romney. >> and he called for lower tax rates which didn't win the day. >> but i think the other part of that that was really important was he said i'm not wedded to any detail, i'm open to new ideas and compromise. that's really important because both sides are going to have to give up things they really care about. >> i heard a totally different speech from the president as we all did from what romney would have said if he won. and he could have won. a couple weeks ago it looked like he was heading that direction. he said he wanted the tax run from the rich because he wanted to do things, not just to screw them, but to do stuff. he actually came out today and said i want to build stuff in this country, rebuild the highways. look at new york, the places that need rebuilding. look at the education needs. we have to catch up to the chinese in education, catch up to the rest of the world. >> i think the election we just had was one of the most ideological elections in modern times. >> explain it in simple terms. >> the president put forward a investigation i look at government as a
investors. the other part of equation, melissa. melissa: yeah. >> as you know president obama has said very nice things about ben bernanke whereas mitt romney had basically said i'm going to fire that guy if i get elected. this probably means a continuation of this kind of easy money policy. one of the things that people might want to look at investing in, if we continuation of these really low interest rates and this flood of money is commodities like gold. melissa: yeah. that's a great point so at the end of the day, yes or no, best or worst, is this the worst lech ship for the stock market ever? >> ever? thatas probably when herbert hoover was elected in 1989. this not the -- 1928. this is not the can ideal outcome. who knows. maybe barack obama will learn the lesson, melissa from his first term and maybe he will actually govern from the middle. hope springs eternnal. melissa: yeah. no. >> give him the benefit of the doubt, come on! give him a honeymoon. melissa: he will govern from the middle. i can feel it. thanks, steve moore. thanks for coming on. thank you. melissa: no. what the pr
they win ohio? they won for a lot of reasons, but that's a huge part of the reason. and a huge part of the reason why the romney campaign, to the very end, thought how can we be losing ohio? this doesn't make sense. the obama campaign went out and found votes that they didn't know existed. >> strategically goes back even further than that where the romney people allowed david plouffe to draw up the map. and said this is where we're going to be fighting the battle. these are going to be the nine states. and that's where they fought them. instead of going into pennsylvania early, instead of going into minnesota, instead of forcing them to fight on their own turf more effectively. and they had all the money in the world. and all for nothing. >> so why do you think they did that? i'll take a guess at why they did that from talking to american a few of them. it's because they thought the country was such in a mood, in this kind of a mood, that people don't like this president. they don't like what's happening to their lives, over the past two or three years of his presidency. we can just
, wisconsin, iowa, in part because of support for the auto bailout, in part because of mitt romney's background as a venture capitalist did not sit well with those voters. the president was able to hang onto enough support from working-class white voters in those states to win those electoral votes. host: this from the "new york times," story on voter turnout. worthy of the bailout was probable, mr. obama benefited. -- and where the auto bailout was palpable, mr. obama benefited. guest: the autumn bailout was a huge benefit for the president. -- auto bailout was a huge benefit for the president. in the end, it paid an enormous electoral dividend. host: shelby on the republican line, north carolina. caller: i do not believe anybody who is a registered voter in the united states count. there or electoral voters in each state. do away with the electoral college's, and then americans vote will count. one vote, one person. host: talk about the voters' attitudes towards the electoral college system. is this something not getting measured in exit polls? guest: after the 2000 election, whe
. governor romney lost and he was the champion of both groups. this could soon be running the course. the oil stocks are hammered in part because the crude futures came down since sandy caused a bill oil backup. you heard about that every night on the news. now gasoline is starting to flow again. i think crude can come back. you need to pick at the oils as i'm doing with my charitable trust. as for the banks, come on, they were not going to do that much better under romney anyway. bankers belly ache over dodd/frank. but they're getting good numbers and banks do nothing but belly ache anyway. i think they're getting oversold. overall, i look at most stocks like this. for the moment they are too high. but the process of wrenching expectations down is under way now. and so therefore is the correction. and ultimately, the capitulation. when we can beat the new lower expectations starbucks-style and bridge the fiscal cliff, i'm confident that we can come back strong. so here's my bottom line. we have cons galore. but there are some pros out there, too. unfortunately, it's sequential just like the
the argument on foreign policy in part because a lot of people are sick of the two wars that george w. bush got us into. that's just a fact. gorgeous george w. bush's type of republic party mitt romney as todd akin richard mourdock in another. >> very good with latinos, kevin mccarthy. we have some bright new leaders and we need to have more of those. >> george w. bush's policies spending and two wars ended up also delivering barack obama into the white house. but let's start with you, chip. your take where we are. what do you think of my point that romney ran a defensive campaign but he also did have to deal with the bush baggage, credibility on spending, and a foreign policy that was frankly the by product of the hopeful but ultimately rather confused and unsuccessful policy in the middle east? >> yeah. i think you are spot on. first, let me say i aspire to be one of those old white guys. >> laura: and rich. >> definitely be a rich old white guy no question. that's what i aspire to be. no question a heavy load for romney. to thine ownself be true. we know who we are as a party. center right p
was reportedly shocked. a senior advisor tells cbs news they were confident they were going to win. romney was described as stoic when he conceded the race to the president in a known call. >>> they are part of an elite military group that operates behind the scenes. but this morning, several navy seals are taking center stage. >> they are being punished because of a new video game. sarah is back now to explain with the details. >> navy seals making news again this morning. seven members of the team six including one member of the team that killed osama bin laden received reprimand letters and had half their pay docked. they are alleged to have divulged classified information to the maker of a video game. the two main complaints that they didn't seek permission to work with the company and they showed the game designer some of their specially designed combat equipment. the game does not recreate the bin laden mission, but it claims to show realistic raids in it. the deputy commander of the special warfare command issued a statement reading in part -- >> cbs first reported the punishments a
you go from getting 44% of the hispanic vote to 31% at john mccain in got to 27% that mitt romney got, that is a bad situation for republicans. when you have the group of growing faster than any other group as part of the electorate and you are shrinking in your share of the vote, that is a big problem. this is one republicans are going to have to deal with. the other groups -- obama did not do well among the white women. the number is a little distorted because so many are hispanic women. an african-american woman that may be voting for the democrats for other reasons. host: exit polls show that female voters went 55% to 45%. guest: we have a gender gap a denture every election except for 2010. and republicans came out even. in presidential elections they have not done well. 11 points is a lot. we will have to think about doing better. i think you do better when you have better candidates. host: talk about the third part of the editorial, the young voters. guest: when they get older, they become more conservative. i do not mean to be dismissive about that. one of the surprises about
%, they lose leverage on the other 2%. it's an effective political tactic on the white house's part. i do think that changing the deductions is a really viable option, and that's why this language is squishy. they're not saying tax cuts but additional he revenues. i think that romney's idea is resonates and being knocked around. the one thing that romney did was have a moving target on it. i don't remember it being percentages, but dollar amounts. let's say everybody got 25,000 let's say everybody got 17,000. so i think that's out there as a real viable option. >> it would be impressive considering that -- >> tamron -- >> it could be a concession. it would be huge. kelly. >> one of the things that's attractive about that is if you specifically isolate the mortgage deduction or charitable deductions, then all the people associated with that the industry of housing, all of those charities have such a vested interest to try to fight that. if you make it a bucket you take some of the sting out. it still may result in people giving charitilyably and buying homes. one of

confident mitt romney would win making this loss all the more disappointing for them. lisa's back. she's working this part of the story. that false sense of optimism as it turned out, where was it coming from? >> the polls show that president obama was leading in several of the swing states, but there was a sense among some conservatives that the polling maybe it just didn't capture some of the tea party voters who don't trust the government and don't participate in these polls. they also thought that the economy would be an issue that hurts the president. and they counted on momentum, which wasn't on their side. the optimism among conservatives was riding high starting with mitt romney's spectacular showing at the first debate. >> as he continues his final swing state push on election eve, we have the proof that his message is in fact resonating with crucial voters across the states. >> you're missing the whole thing on momentum. momentum. i'm saying that there is anywhere from three to seven points of just momentum. >> that overconfidence even if it conflicted with polling data made
in the national conversation and the democrats are vowing to make it part of the agenda nationally for the next four years. listen to this. >> we had is a very clear to lease. we had mitt romney saying climate is a joke and president obama saying it is a threat. in states across the country people rallied around a candidate who recognizes the science and the threat and to do some about it. stuart: that was bob deans from the n r d c relief fund in the last hour. he might be right. new poll released by rasmussen moments ago shows this. 68% of likely u.s. voters say global warming is a serious problem. >> they got it wrong. if you think what happened right here in new york city areas evidence of global warming forget it. we are in a hurricane route. the last category 3 hurricane we saw make landfall in this country was in 2005, will not. what is going on is storms are getting smaller, not bigger. stuart: if 60% of the voters say this is a big deal, you -- that will drive policy. you will get as -- you will get the epa cracking down on existing -- [talking over each other] liz: mitt romney was gov
in 2008. it had to be rebuilt by the romney campaign, but only after their able to get the republican nomination in april. it was late in part because of super pacs, which kept the process going much longer than it ever normally goes. as long as you and i have been watching this and before that, when a candidate started losing primaries, other donors close their checkbooks. you run out of money and you drop out of the race. what is happening is, they kept gingrinch going for a while. the process went longer and longer. romney had to go so much further and longer -- here is a guy who is probably by nature -- when we met for him when he ran for the senate in 1994, that is where he was. he has to run so much longer and further to the right than he ever dreamed and in part because of the super pac effort. then you had -- i guess the final thing i would say is having the economy kind of -- i do not think we are seeing a big economic turnaround, but we have the stock market moving up. we had consumer confidence that is now one measurement of that eight month high. the housing sector is show
answer the question. shannon: it sounded like he didn't like all that, but parts of it. >> you sound like you're still in campaign mode. [talking over each other] [talking over each other] >> you one. you don't have to keep arguing about mitt romney. >> excuse me, can i get a word in? you know, you don't have to keep beating up mitt romney. obviously, he mischaracterized what he said about the dream act. they did so throughout the campaign. this is a guy that with your prizes being a felon and a tax cheat and he killed a woman with cancer. frankly, this almost pales in comparison to the lies and distortions by the obama administration. this speaks to the real need to analyze as a republican party what role hispanics will play and how republicans should or should not reach out to hispanics. it is a debate we have to have. >> this is not with the american people. continuing to beat up on the president who won the election. >> what but you want to beat up on mitt romney? [talking over each other] >> the campaign is over. it's finished. let's move on together to try to make it a better countr
agree with that? >> yeah, that's the second part of the equation. that is we had a candidate who was forcefully the biggest issue of this election, which was obama care, on the table. because he had romney care to deal with. and if we had been able to so as the center right coalition, if the candidate had been able to take barack obama to task for one of the most unpopular laws this country has ever passed, then i believe that we could have been successful in ousting president obama. >> steve latourette said he disagreed, when i asked him was that the problem was the conservatism of mitt romney, he said that the tea party's position on this was wrong. he actually said crap but i'll play what he said. >> there's one more phrase we use in ohio for that crap, and that's nonsense. and, you know, if you look at what happened. we lost charlie best and frank ginta in new hampshire. the republican party cannot be a national party if we give up the entire east coast of the united states and say that there aren't any -- we don't have any republicans in new england. we don't have any republ
it is a growing part of the democratic coalition to rid the union membership is shrinking to read 26% of the voters just this week it was only 18% and actually 30% voted for mitt romney so you're right it's going to be more about the sun belt. >> it was 40% overall. >> we will stay on the side of the room and go over here. >> you spoke about the long-term trend of the declining voter turnout increased polarization into promotional the some. do you see a relationship between that and the defunding and the declining quality of public education? >> i think declining quality of public education, the quantity and quality of citizen the fact of the majority of young people are now growing up in households both of whose parents don't vote those are some of the factors. i think a shift to the values and libertarian bill use has contributed like i think the stalemate in government. the trust in leadership. i think's every iteration of the mass media year of cable and satellite and iphone and facebook and all those things that create larger communities. i think those things when you don't have
romney's momentum. he got back in the race. he got stuck at a point where he could not go any further. >> a good to this part of the room. let's go here. >> u.s. news and world report. it seems the coalition was unable biunique elements of this election. he have the bain background. how will they try to recreate the coalition? >> great question. a year ago, i would have said poorly among bluen collar and older whites. even with paul ryan on the ticket, a 60% of seniors voted for romney. in the long run, i did those mr. read states are problematic for democrats. -- i think those red states are problematic for democrats. look at north carolina. in north carolina or virginia, obama's numbers among blue- collar whites are unbelievably low. they are in the high-20's or 30's. in the long run, i do think there is this pattern. the sun belt will be more important than the west about. they do have the incredible ability to hang on to -- the shift will be to states that have the same social forces of rising diversity and rising education levels. >> we have a slight disagreement. obama did well
